Or so begins more of the political mismatched jigsaw puzzle frustration that characterizes most of modern politics. But the leftist approach to this issue I find possibly less correct, in that unlike other issues it looks at, this one seem totally reactive to effects, as opposed to looking deeper into systematic causes. Frustratingly, the leftists do this more correctly for other issues, like homelessness for example, where they analyze housing deficiencies rather than other things that happen downstream of that.
I am not a leftist or conservative. I am a social constructionist. And I think that the misuse of the 2nd amendment is clearly, to me, the fruit of a much larger, sicker plant. It could be violence that is caused by mobs or drug overlords. Or people that do not have the psychological constitution to have guns. Or ill-trained authorities. But before that pile of errors, there is such a thing as the responsible and sovereign citizen, that does have the responsibility, to not misuse what others would.
Now it could be that the 2nd amendment right should be put on hiatus, until the more systematic issues can be solved. That might be worth a thought
